Homesown flowers and plants: what’s available this week.

Email: thedevelopingplot@gmail.com

It was lovely to be back at Sofacoma market last week and to meet up with customers face to face. No market for me this week, but if you would like your flowers delivered, just email with a day’s notice and I will deliver them to your door.

I will confirm availability as soon as I can and you can then pay via BACS, contactless or with cash/cheque in an envelope.

Flowers

Scabious, roses, salvia, echinops ritro and sweetpeas are still very productive. The dahlias are starting to bloom too.

Some recent pickings:

If you would like a regular delivery weekly, fortnightly or monthly, why not buy a flower subscription? Cost is dependent on length of subscription and size of bouquet/bucket – affordable, seasonal flowers delivered to your door. Makes a great present.

Bouquets of flowers are supplied in a jam jar or a vase, from smaller bunches at £5.00 to larger ones at £10.00 and £20.00 or over.

Jam Jar Flowers start at £5.00 and are made up of what is looking best each week.

Gift bouquets:

Buckets of flowers to arrange yourself start at £15.00 with at least 50 stems. If there is a particular colour palette you prefer for your bouquet or bucket, let me know.

The flowers will vary depending on what is growing best; this week’s flowers will be chosen from: echinops, achillea, larkspur, roses, ammi majus, geum, astrantia, love in a mist, scabious and a range of foliage.

A word about the flowers: all the flowers and foliage are grown (and sometimes foraged) by me locally with a light environmental footprint and an organic approach. Most have been grown from seed, using organic methods, in high quality peat free compost. Once harvested, they are transported less than a mile from the plot and are conditioned, but not treated with anything but water.This means the flowers you buy from me will not have been doused several times in chemicals. They are ephemeral, beautiful and gentle on the environment. in fact, many of them are chosen because they are loved by butterflies and bees.
